    You can use google voice to make a call widget, when someone clicks the link it calls you'r phone and then connects you to their phone.

    Another option is to make you'r contact a QR code, and have the QR code there for other users to easily add you'r contact to their contact book.

    You can make a contact into QRCode using Listables...

    Otherwise, your best bet would be to sign up for Google Voice and use that number, and include your contact info that way...

    Assuming, of course, that you are trying to ad dyour own contact info to the web page.

    if you are trying to add others info, I suppose the easiest way would be to go to your Google Account using a web browser on the PC, then go into settings, and then export your contacts in CSV format.

    Then you'd be able to import the CSV into a table of sorts, or something similar, depending upon what support the CMS has for CSV files....
